Sierra - changes to files, Log and the impact to Time Machine


Updated for Sierra and have a minor but very annoying problem. I hope someone can help.

In the Sierra before the SYSLOG command would print the system from the Console log. Time Machine executions have been recorded there. With a simple command-line grep "iMac" I could find all the Time Machine backups and see backup times and pass/fail status, when an error has occurred, the error type.

Monitor the status of backup is critical for me.

In the Sierra, the log files are completely different. I can't find where time machine stores its entries or what these entries look like.

Anyone know how Sierra I accomplish the above? In a log file or elsewhere?

Thank you

  • Vista SP1 does not update problems and System Restore returns a message "system restore was not entirely successful. File system and the setting of your computer has not changed"with the error code (0x80071AA7)

    0rignal title: Vista SP1 didn't update problem

    So, recently, I was on my computer of gf and noticed she had some updates, it could use his computer which included the SP1 update.  So I went through the process trying to update his computer and he has been a disaster and have had many problems and seems to have tried everything.  It has a Dell inspiron 1525 and has no CD and no key for its program of Vista.  I burned a Vista recovery disk and tried troubleshooting by using that, but have not had much luck.  When I use the Startup Repair tool there is no nothing.  So I tried to use the restore of the system with the Description of "install: Windows Vista Service Pack 1.  He had a restore point saved just before I tried to update to SP1.  Whenever I chose this method, it's but the whole process then in the end it says:

    "System restore was not entirely successful.  File system and the setting of your computer have not changed. "

    then he begins to list the details with the error code (0x80071AA7) and then gives me the option to close or 'Run System Restore"once again that is an endless loop, because I just end up with the same error each time.  If anyone has had this problem and bring myself through it.  I don't want to reinstall windows because it seems simply ridiculous and plus that she a lot of pictures on his computer and I want to get rid of those.

    If you need more information please let me know and evil provides everything I can

    Follow the steps and check if the problem persists.
    Step 1:
    I suspect that your security program may be responsible for this. I would suggest you temporarily disable all security software and try the system restore.

    Note : Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats.  In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.
    Step 2:
    As for installing updates is concerned, I you should install them after you put your computer in aclean boot State. There could be a third-party software in conflict with updates. Clean boot helps eliminate these conflicts.
    Note: Restart your machine as usual by following step 7.

  • control the size of the Essbase.log and the application log

    Understand that there are many messages have been written for the Essbase.log and the application log. Is there any method to control what message to write to the log file in order to reduce the frequency of the e/s of the partition of the server data?

    Thanks for your help!

    You can think of forcing your ASF/ASO PAG & IND/DAT files to go on a separate disk from your base volume binary Essbase. This can be difficult to do in a SAN environment, because it is difficult to know what is really where.

    Another option would be to use CLEARLOGFILE to reset the logs (this will remove the whenever you stop/restart Essbase, so make sure that you check them if you need to open a historic session).

    Still another would be to SSLOGUNKNWON set to false to break down on the newspaper.

    Kind regards

    Make sure your computer is compatible with Lion mountain, Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan.

    To check the model number and hold the option/Alt hold, go to the Apple menu and select system information.

    MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer) model number 3.1 or later version.

    Your Mac needs:

    Installation of OS X 10.6.8 or OS X Lion

    2 GB or more of memory (more is better - minimum 4 GB seems to be the consensus)

    8 GB or more of available space

    Check to make sure that your applications are compatible. PowerPC applications are no longer supported after 10.6.

    Application compatibility

    (2) application compatibility

    Information on the compatibility of 10.11 El Capitan

  • The merger with Time Machine backups

    I fear I know the answer to that, but would like confirmation.

    I am running Fusion 2.0.4 and have Mac OS 10.5.6.

    As part of support to replace a faulty card from the airport on my MBP, Apple did a new install of the OS and erased my disk. When I started the laptop I told it to restore from a Time Machine backup. He restored all the files under the My Documents folder, except for my virtual machines. He has even restored a text file I had in the 'Virtual Machines' folder, but not the virtual machines themselves. Looking back through the external drive for Time Machine, I don't see the virtual machines to any previous backup.

    I guess I'm watered at this point, although I'm hoping the actual VMs are located elsewhere, and under 'Virtual Machines' files are just links. Does anyone have an idea what I can try, or why the virtual machines are not saved?

    Thank you.


    If your virtual machines were in the "Virtual Machines" folder, where they are. Although it is possible to create a configuration where this isn't quite the case (for example, the link hard to another directory or volume), the simplest and explanation of the default value is that your virtual machines were either not stored (in this case I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news) or in the first place never were in this folder (you can check your drive to backup files/folders - virtual machines tend to be big so should stand out).

    As to why it is, Time Machine in the first versions of Leopard would cause a deadlock (and hang the Mac) in certain circumstances, one of them was a virtual machine. To work around this problem, Fusion told Time Machine to exclude virtual machines. Apple has fixed the bug of Time Machine and deleted merge the exclusion of Time Machine, but it is possible to get into situations where virtual machines are still excluded.

    In general, we do not recommend the use of Time Machine to back up virtual machines - the short version is that it will go quickly through space and that it still does not produce a viable backup. Instead, we recommend that you back up files in the comments (or their mirror to the host and let Time Machine pick them up there), or manually back up virtual machines when they are not running.

  • How can I change my artists contributing and the title of my music files

    Hello, some of my music has incorrect artists and titles in its properties, I was wondering how I could change them by typing in the most appropriate? Thank you

    HI - regarding the Michel which is not the best way to do it, especially if you use Windows Media Player. Change the information in the Windows Media Library as shown in the screenshot below - highlight and right click and you should get the option 'Edit' for the relevant column. (Modification of information in the library 'explorer' can break the bond of WMP so the change should be made in the library of WMP or alternatively to the location of the original file)

    You can highlight the right click and change in the fields in yellow... (and also change the album art if necessary, by selecting a new jpeg image, by clicking on "copy" and you will then get the option "Paste" when you click on the existing image... Note, you will not see 'stick' after clicking 'copy'!) Hope this helps - R

  • Why finder hide Documents and office files in the home directory of the user by activating iCloud drive? What about the behavior of Time Machine backup or third-party applications?

    I'm under MacOS Sierra. I am connected to my iCloud account. I activated the option Desktop and Documents, but I did NOT activate the option optimize Mac storage, because I wanted to make sure that all my files would be available locally, just in case, I would need to work without an internet connection.

    -J' noticed there now a menu iCloud in my sidebar in the Finder, with links to Documents and desktop.

    -J' also noticed that Documents is no longer presented in my favorites in my side bar of the Finder.

    -This last suggests that files saved in 'Documents' are not saved more on my HD... but only in iCloud, which isn't what I want.

    -Then, sailing in the Finder Macintosh HD/users / 'My account' /, I noticed that my Documents and desktop folders are more visible, as if these files are not saved in my home folder most. Which raises the question: where are My Documents and files on my HD, so they are still?

    -Using a shell session in the terminal and again navigate to/Users / 'My account' /, I noticed that my Documents and desktop folders are still there. Which suggest that records and records of office reside actually still in my home folder under users, but Finder actually hide it and present them as being stored in iCloud only disc. It's very confusing.

    This raises several questions:

    -In the first place, why Apple hide Documents and office files in the directory? Why not view these folders in iCloud and directory?

    -Whence the iCloud folder or drive, reside actually on my hard drive?

    -What time Machine. Is it still back up my document files and folders?

    -What games third-party app mirroring backup of My Documents files and folders? They still work properly? (I use Livedrive backup and Sugarsync for files mirrored across several macs).

    -How can I understand that Apple is doing with my folders and files? Some users might be happy with the iCloud drive concept, without worrying about how it works, but I don't take chances, and I want to keep a good understanding about the functioning of my system.

    Could someone explain what is exactly happening?

    With office and selected Documents, access to these files are now in the iCloud Drive, not in your home folder.

    My guess would be that they do not appear in your file because it would be confusing for many people to make them in two places.

    If you want in the Favorites, open iCloud Drive and drag them in the sidebar here.

    All about iCloud drive has been saved on your Mac. With the exception of the office and the Documents, they are in ~/Library/Mobile Documents. However, if you choose optimized storage, older documents are removed from your Mac. I don't know what is "old".

    ~/Documents and ~/desktop have new metadata indicating probably Finder does not display them in a Finder window, only in iCloud drive. They are not hidden in one of the normal methods of unix.

    I have not tested Time Machine or any other backup program. The folder still exist in your directory home, and they still have all the files, I don't think that changes anything.

  • Automate the Purge on HFM newspapers and the impact

    Hi all

    Some of our customers have their newspapers more considerable HFM, and is having a direct impact on the performance of HFM. I read that once the line count batteries beyoung 500 000 there is a degradation in performance. DB servers our MS SQL.

    I was wondering if there is anyway to automate the purge of the newspaper since the backend tables. I want to keep the last 90 days of logs and remove all the other stuff. Oracle is very vague on the subject, and I couldn't find good sources of documentation. My query is related 11.1.1 and more

    (1) automation of purge weekly or monthly will be beneficial?

    (2) how can I automate the purge of the DB on the tables?

    (3) is there an impact on HFM when the purge occurs?

    (4) is there an impact on the users/application if the application if it is open when the purge routine occurs?

    Appreciate any help/documentation regarding the reach this goal.

    Hello. Oracle is vague about what they don't know what databases are running on the hardware. I had a customer who does not see performance issues until their audit log data was approximately 80,000,000 records. Many people use a SQL process to archive off the coast and truncate tables. Others use the utility provided with HFM to do. Whatever it is, having a few months of online documents and then extract / truncating should be fine. Ideally users are not in the system, or at least not make data changes (loading, magazines, input, etc.).


  • How to change a file name in the Photos? (no title)

    I know how to change the title of a photo in the Photos.  But I do not see how you change a file name.  Can anyone help?

    Photos will not change an imported file.  The original master image file is preserved. You can't even change the file name.

    To change the name of the file, export the Photos photo: file > export, and then specify a different file name in the export Panel.

    Re-import the renamed picture, then delete the first version you imported.
